I wrote this as my first blog: it was long: I think I saw it as writing a paper for college (uni)
I have cut out some of it.
This above all; to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as night follows day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man,
Being true to ones self is much more than just being honest.
This Shakespeare quote is how I try to live my life.
Our culture operates on the assumption that people are honest and truthful yet this often isn’t so.
On a “white lie” level; how often do people say what they think the other person wants to hear or lie to get attention & make themselves feel important.
Lying; cheating; stealing and scams are rampant.
On the other hand one could argue that telling the truth is not always kind?
I feel so strongly about telling the truth as I believe it to be that even if I accidentally lie I feel guilty.
What I write I believe either to be true or possible. I am not “into” “absolute ideologies” so I acknowledge this is only my opinion.
The following is a quote from Marion Weinstein’s “Positive Magick”( Bibliography: page 234; Positive Magic: Earth Magic productions New York; First published in 1978 by Simon & Schuster Pocket Books New York)
Ma’Kheru, or The Word of Truth
The concept of Ma’ Kheru, or Maat, was a highly regarded state of being in ancient Egypt. In fact it was always hoped that by the time a person died, he/ she would have reached this state of personal evolution.
In my lifetime society’s attitude to clairvoyance and associated philosophy’s has improved along with attitudes to minority groups such as women; different races; sexual preference; etc. Although there are still many “out there” who consider clairvoyance to be a con at best and evil at worst.
People are free to believe as they choose and I have no desire to alter people’s beliefs or opinions.
I do not require other’s to believe as I do to make it true.
The clairvoyants that I know (including myself) are genuine and honest
I was made aware of a scam last century where people who went for a reading were told that a “hex” had been put on them and were charged $2,000 to remove same. Similar scams still happen
The way to avoid being conned is to trust ones “gut”!
To quote or maybe paraphrase Dr. Deepak Chopra:” We should always trust our “gut”. Every cell in our bodies has neuropeptides which means every cell thinks. It is better to trust your “gut” because it hasn’t learned to doubt what it thinks.”
I am able to see & communicate with people that have died as well as other discarnate beings. I know that my clairvoyant ability is genuine because I was extremely sceptical in the nineteen seventies when I first participated in Spiritualist psychic development groups. I made sure that I was being honest with myself so that I knew I was really “seeing”
I have had numerous experiences to confirm that I am truly communicating with beings who are no longer in this reality.
When I “see” (clairvoyance); “hear” (clairaudience) or” feel” (clairsensience) It flashes in a fraction of a second.
Despite my clairvoyant awareness and experiences I do not claim to understand the nature of reality. And I have questioned the nature of reality since I was seven years old. (six decades ago)
Knowing that I have helped someone by proving that their loved one is genuinely communicating is rewarding.
Every one is clairvoyant:
The ability atrophies because our culture that tells us there is no such thing!
My mentor taught us that clairvoyance is a natural ability: an extension of our five senses!
To get this ability back, just use it:
I am including some really simple things to try:
Guess who is on the phone before you answer— oops this one is no good with mobiles or phones that show incoming caller! (I am showing my age here)
Have a friend give you the “given” name of someone that you do not know and visualize what this person looks like: Feel what their personality is like: their occupation etc.
If you are going somewhere that you have never been visualize this place before you go.
To see auras have someone sit in front of a pale coloured wall: you will only see colours or even the etheric over this person’s shoulders because clothes muffle the aura: (This is one of the reasons that some Wiccan traditions work skyclad) Most people see the etheric immediately it is a white two inch ( 5cms) band:
Every thing flashes in a fraction of a second: clairvoyance; clairaudience and clairsension:
There is a scientific explanation for us sensing someone who isn’t in our line of vision but looking at us: This same ability is often used to sense “discarnate” beings! These discarnate beings are just “out of phase”!
Proprioception. (prō’prē-ō-sěp’shən) The unconscious perception of movement and spatial orientation arising from stimuli within the body itself. In humans, these stimuli are detected by nerves within the body itself, as well as by the semicircular canals of the inner ear.
Life after death has nothing to do with God or heaven but quantum physics as in discarnate beings are in another reality where the electrons are moving at a different speed around the protons and neutrons; than they are in this reality. Hence out of phase to us.
If you cannot find something, e.g. lost your car keys: are having difficulty making a decision; talk to yourself; or a guide; angel or God if you believe in one. I believe it is other aspects of our multidimensional being that give us answers:
I no longer run psychic development groups nor train would be witches. Up until the last couple of years I would be asked to run same and asked to keep them going because everyone enjoyed them so much. But the last couple of times i agreed to run a group they just “flopped”?
Another exercise to try:
Sit in front of a miror in a darkened room with a lit candle behind you:
you may burn incense if you wish:
In the mirror your face blanks out and then changes: I do not know what or why this is but you are welcome to observe if you are comfortable.
In the mirror “people” will build up behind your right or left shoulder ( reflection of)
You may call people in if you wish.
Spiritualists taught that calling people was unacceptable but if the ‘person’ you are calling doesn’t wish to appear they wont.
I communicate mostly by visual images: occasionally I “hear”: often concepts just pop into my head: so just note what is happening when or if you speak to people that “have passed over”
Have fun! it is a buzz when you succeed
Sadly I belong to the most dangerous species on the planet!
If I could change reality, I would change this world.
To begin with the human population would be vastly less than it is. All the damage we humans have done to this planet and the ecology would be healed and all the species we have made extinct would be restored.
The human plague problem is easily solved by implementing zero population growth i.e. one child per couple but this solution is culturally unacceptable. Azimof wrote a novel called the Gods themselves The social satire was that science had to provide a solution for a problem because humans refused to apply the simple and obvious one!
I realized long ago I must work in the microcosm before I can influence the macrocosm. I have done; and still am, doing what I can to change things that I believe to be wrong. I have seen some changes for the better. But nowhere near enough.
I In the 1970’s I was in Animal Liberation; Greenpeace; Women’s Liberation. Greenpeace informed us way back then that we had destroyed this planet beyond repair.
In later years I joined “Trees for Life”. All these organisations were started by people who really care but humans apparently mess everything up and the organisations end up money-making bureaucracies; with mindless automatons just giving lip service to the original principles, thinking it trendy.
I get told not to feed the magpies because I am stopping them from finding their own food. Well they eat mice but humans poison mice: The magpies eat worms but humans concrete their properties and bitumen the roads. So magpies have to kill other birds to eat; hence I feed then to prevent this. A few nights ago a moth kept throwing itself against my kitchen window even though the curtains were closed. I turned off the light but the moth didn’t survive. It reminded me of when I was in primary school and we were learning about Albert Schweitzer. Our teacher told us that he used to be upset because the moths hurt themselves being attracted to lights. She found this strange. I feel the same. I must be strange!
When I was very young and found out where meat came from I refused to eat it. For this I received a bashing and my mother told me that I would end up in a mental institution for being strange. (Here’s that word again-“strange”?!). The same meal was put in front of me for breakfast, lunch and tea until I ate it.
Carnivores tell me that the meat industry is nature. DER! There is no adrenaline rush from the hunt: No respect for the animal giving up its life: just queues of animals watching others being slaughtered!
I get emotional thinking of the scape goat. What an existence!
Factory farming is horrific. I just won’t start on that one!
Use of animals in laboratories even more horrifying!
Another thing that annoys me is “pest control”. Humans eradicate things they consider have reached plague proportion or are not indigenous. Humans are way beyond plague proportions! White Anglo Saxon Protestants (WASPs) are certainly not indigenous to Australia or the United States of America! Locally they cull the Correllas (parrots) because they are annoying. Humans have removed almost all the trees these Correllas are able to feed from.
Insects are so important to the environment but humans just kill them because they can! I was given this quote but do not know the author. “If all the insects left the planet, the planet would die. If all the humans left the planet, the planet would thrive!”
If we deliberately ran over another person we would be up for murder but people are allowed to run over birds, animals and reptiles because they are on the road. I just don’t get the arrogance of people thinking they are the only species that matters.
Humans are prosecuted for destroying property but destroying the environment is considered progress. Locally the real estate companies have destroyed heritage bushland by bulldozing or burning. They then sub divide and build houses so more of the most dangerous creatures on the planet can live here.
Movies like Avatar or The Day the Earth Stood Still are only preaching to the converted.
If anyone one has even read this far maybe you would join me in one or all of the affirmations that I do daily. Just from a psychological and sociological point of view the more people that believe in something, the better chance it has of happening.
Affirmation: “Humans show love and respect to all life forms especially their pets mother earth and one another” : “There is zero population growth of homo sapiens” “All humans are vegetarians”: “Factory farming and meat industry abolished; Laboratory use of animals abolished”
So mote it be and Namaste to planet Earth and Her life forms
When I was a child I promised myself that I wouldn’t go on about “the good old days” when I became older!
I found myself saying something like this to the vet this morning! I just said to her that it is a sad reflection on today’s society that veterinaries and doctor’s main concerns were making money!
I know that the “good old days” were not that good!
The “plus” about when I was young was that the population of the whole of Australia was twelve million: When there is only a small population people’s out look is different: Life flows at a slower pace and your average Aussie would go out of their way to help any one!
In the seventies I was in Women’s Liberation; Animal Liberation: Greenpeace ( we were considered the lunatic fringe back then) and in the eighties Trees for Life.
When I was in Women’s Liberation : we had the vote but not equal-rights! Women couldn’t have bank accounts: couldn’t buy houses/property: couldn’t hold a government job if married: were only paid 75% of a man’s wage: landlords would not rent to separated women: no women’s shelter: your husband had every right to beat you: you were his property: women had to give up a baby if not married: men were expected to be promiscuous: women were expected to be virgins: . Women’s Liberation only asked that we be treated as equal.
Most men of my era still see women as an inferior sub culture:
Children had no rights: many were victims of abuse and it was difficult for those campaigning against child pornography: sexual abuse and other abuse to even be heard.
In the “good old days” your average mindless automaton had no concern for other life forms or the ecology of the planet! They considered their (our) species superior! And that god made it that way!
And back then; most women believed that women should be kept in their place— “A wife is a device that you screw on the bed and it does the housework.!”
I dropped out of both Animal Liberation and Trees for Life a few years ago because most of the people involved these days; do so because it is fashionable; and are so tied up with rules and protocol that the goals of caring for animals and or trees are not achieved.
I am a life member of GreenPeace but have had nothing to do with them for decades because they seem more concerned about collecting donations.
At my very first sociology lecture we were told that “there is always the us and them dichotomy” and “say organisation say oligarchy” At the time I thought what a load of crap! Since then I have seen it every where.
I was involved with Wicca: clairvoyance and “energy healing” back when few were aware of the existence of such things!
Now that it is part of the culture it has taken on the Protestant ethic of “lets make money out of this!”
On Facebook there are posts saying leave things to Karma! If everyone waited for Karma or ” left things to god” we would still be living in the Dark Ages!
My grand children’s generation are concerned about the environment etc.
So here’s to the “good new days!”
People tend to believe that a belief in God and heaven is necessary for a belief in and “afterlife” Surviving death isn’t synonymous with a religious belief. We do not understand the nature of reality. It appears we exist in an alternate reality when we are “not here”! In this reality the electrons are apparently moving at a different speed around the protons and neutrons so it is out of phase. ( This is my very limited understanding of quantum physics)
The Following post on Facebook motivated me to write this blog!
The incident that convinced me that clairvoyance was a reality happened at work. In the late 19 70’s. I was a student nurse at Strathmont Centre. I was washing dishes with a male staff nurse. We didn’t have kitchen hands in those days. Kym was 6 ft tall and rather heavy set. He had long blonde hair and dressed “Flower Power” style. A man (deceased) flashed in! (When I see or hear things they flash in a fraction of a second) He had Kym’s high forehead and similar features but wore a suit with a crepe ribbon and a cross and had a short back and sides hair cut and dark hair.
I asked Kym if his father was a minister. He asked me why and initially I would not answer. I eventually told him what I saw and Kym told me that it was his uncle. He asked me what denomination his uncle was.
I did not know.
After Kym left the kitchen I asked his uncle what he had died of. The words were that fast all I could make out was sclerosis. Because we were with the intellectually disabled I thought “tubular sclerosis?” Then I realized it was multiple sclerosis.
When we were having a tea break Kym told me that his uncle died of multiple sclerosis. I was amazed and said that his uncle had “told” me this!
Kym said “Get more”! I informed him that I couldn’t.
But I saw panama hats and monkeys. I said “He was a missionary in South America” Kym said “Yes”. I then saw masks and a jungle and said he was also a missionary in New Guinea. Kym told me this wasn’t so. When Kym came to work the next day he said that his mother had confirmed that her brother had been a missionary in New Guinea. This showed that I wasn’t just reading Kim’s mind.
I previously entitled this Computer End Program and received no likes?
“Computer End Program” was a statement made by Dwight Schultz character Lt Barclay at the end of “Ship In A Bottle” Star Trek Next Generation: season six. Implying that “we” may exist in an holodeck program.
I am writing this to remind myself to put into practice what I know.
I believed we created our own reality by our thoughts words and of course actions in the 70s:
I taught would be witches how to manifest!
Yet recently I’ve spat the dummy and thought:
“What a load of crock! If I created reality my life would have been so much better. Who’d choose to suffer almost a life time of abuse etc!”
By writing this I am reminding myself to be in the “NOW”
From “The Way Of The Peaceful Warrior:
by Dan Millman
“Where am I? HERE!”
What time is it “NOW”
Other peoples thoughts, words and actions affect our reality (ofcourse) but we can and more importantly WILL consciously create our own reality.
THE WITCHES PYRAMID
(from my Book Of Shadows)
“TO KNOW: TO DARE: TO WILL and TO KEEP SILENT”
TO KNOW: This includes knowing the laws you are working with; e.g. Law of cause and effect:
The more I know; the less I know that I know which may seem “Irish” but seriously I certainly don’t understand the nature of this reality!
Know ones self: and most importantly know that you will succeed in your undertaking.
TO DARE: overcome fears and hindrances especially those inculcated by our culture.
TO WILL: Emotions are the power behind manifesting.
So believe in yourself:
Intention is what directs the manifestation.
My manifestations have succeeded when I have known they will manifest.
Actually I see them as already manifested.
In the beginning I found this part difficult so I had this attitude “I believe this will happen/ manifest but if it doesn’t I don’t care “ And they manifested.
Another way is to inculcate what you are trying to manifest. Use a verbal spell or word power: record this and play it continually.
TO KEEP SILENT: Other peoples thoughts and words will effect what you are doing so you don’t tell anyone!
I snapped my self out of my “What a lot of crock?” attitude by reminding myself of all the things that I have manifested.
Considering I started doing this in the late seventies there are numerous examples.
The one I would like to share is about a puppy/dog:
My parents (now deceased) lived in a very small housing Trust unit. There was a back “yard” which all units were meant to share. Their neighbour on the western side had fenced of his back yard and also bricked up most of the space as a garden. They had gotten numerous small dogs all of which managed to get out some how and run away. They eventually got a Labrador pup. Which was mostly locked in a wooden box he called its kennel! One day when this pup was actually out of the box and growing I noticed blood around her neck . Her collar was too tight and cutting her neck as she grew I reached through the fence and loosened her collar. After this, the neighbour put barbed wire on the fence at many levels so that there was no way I could reach the dog!
My mother insisted that I wasn’t to call the RSPCA because she didn’t want conflict with their neighbours. I always did what my mother said. I was terrified of her.
I had this dog on my healing list and started to visualize her living happily with a new owner.
Unfortunately it was approximately six months before this manifested.
My parents neighbour offered the dog to me!
I had a Bully/ Kelpie cross at this time, who was so grumpy to Cerri the dog: Doing his “I’m top dog here routine” That I knew it wasn’t a good home for her. Her eyes were glazed with fear. I mentioned it to a local business owner and she said that she would take the dog to live on their property. ( My dog fretted for weeks after she Cerri left.)
Cerri has been with this family: happy ever since. She is very old now.
Sadly I don’t have any picture of Cerrie! I was more worried about getting her well than taking her photo at the time.
When I first became interested in Wicca we had to send over seas for books. These days you can Google a spell if you are not confident creating your own.
The following “word Power” is to set up changes in your subconscious.

most perfect circumstances for my own fulfilment

And for the good of all,
According to the free will of all.
And so mote it be.
blessed be and
My dad died 27th of May 2004 Lately i have “felt” he was around. before I tell you about this I am including a tribute to my Dad from my daughter 12 years ago.
“Dear Granddad, we miss you very much. You were so full of wisdom and always had a smile on your face. You took people for who they were and never had a bad word to say about anyone. You were the rock of our family, steady and strong. You taught us so much, and we are all better people for having known and loved you. You will always be in our hearts and memories. Love you forever your Granddaughter”
On the first Father’s Day after Dad’s death I took my Mother and a friend of hers; Mavis (now also deceased); to the local cemetery to visit their husband’s graves. Afterward I brought them back to my home for scones and tea. Mum made remarks that Dad was with us. And I could see him also. When I “see” it flashes for a fraction of a second. Then the image has gone: same with words and concepts. They are just a quick flash .
After driving my Mother and Mavis back to their respective homes and returning to mine. I concentrated on my Father.
It was quite possible that I had imagined seeing Dad. Wishful thinking?! So I asked that he prove that it was/is him by showing me something that I didn’t know.
He showed me an umbrella stand that I knew he had made. It had several umbrellas on it; one with a bird’s head handle.
I telephoned my Mother and asked if they ever had an umbrella with a bird’s head handle. She said that they had “But what is he going on about this for?!” I also asked if Dad had made the umbrella stand and she said that he had: Repeating “What is he going on about this for?! We left all that in England!!
Recently I have thought that my Dad was around but (again) wondered if it was just wishful thinking! So I suggested to him that he contact someone else as confirmation. Last Monday I received a message via Facebook messages.
“Hi Kate, just wondering if it’s your dads birthday or anniversary or something ???????????????? He’s popped into my head for about 4 days in a row, he was looking in your front door giving a little wave with a smile. Weird , at odd times and I wasn’t even trying, busy doing things and there he was. Thought I’d wait to see if I got a message for you but nothing today, he looked happy and as I said he was smiling………..hope this makes your day x”
When my daughter’s paternal grandfather was alive he would ridicule me for my clairvoyance and say that there was nothing after death. He claimed that he knew this because he had died several times.
I was running a psychic development group in 1991. Someone “saw” my ex father-in-law. Actually what they described was a photo of Barney and his brother in their army uniforms. I was able to connect with Barney at this time. He was “saying” you were right and jumping around. I told him that this didn’t prove anything to me. I said “I know what you look like; I know what you sound like and I know what you think; show me something that I don’t know.” (Not out loud!)
Firstly he showed me one of my daughter’s horses that he claimed had gone through the meat works. I told him I wasn’t going to check this up. Too upsetting! He then showed me a “duck” and lifted the head off. He said “Where is the duck?”
But my mind went to something familiar. I associated this duck with a rocker duck that Barney had made for my daughter when she was a baby. I tried to find out what had happened to the rocker.
Two weeks later I went to my daughters for dinner. In the kitchen there was a biscuit barrel. A duck! And the head came off. I asked my daughter who had bought this for her. She told me Grandma and Granddad.
In January 1992 while I was sitting outside knitting. (This was my stopping smoking therapy!)
I “saw” my daughter’s paternal grandfather.
My initial response was “What do you want?”
He gave me some information pertaining to a male friend which is not relevant to this story.
He then told me that he was reincarnating as my daughter’s son in August.
Many years later my daughter had her first child. A boy; born in August . I had almost forgotten Barney’s message until a pagan friend whom had been sending healing to the baby wrote to me that there was a reincarnation link with this child. She thought it my daughter’s grandfather.
Re the “seeing” and “communication” everything flashes in a fraction of a second. Clairaudience is often way too fast to understand and I usually get concepts which still flash in a fraction of a second.
I know that there are many people who have similar stories to share.
I have many similar stories all making me question the nature of reality and life and death.

[Marshall McLuhan argues that technologies — from clothing to the wheel to the book, and beyond — are the messages themselves, not the content of the medium. In essence, The Medium is the Massage is a graphical and creative representation of his “medium is the message” thesis seen in Understanding Media.]
We tend to believe what the media tells us, yet it is controlled by multinationals, just as the government is. Thus it is neither objective nor honest.
(Sunrise is sponsored by the meat industry. I switch off every time I am told how good pork is. They strangely enough don’t tell us how horrific factory farming and the abattoirs are for these intelligent animals)
This morning on Sunrise, there was an interview with some one from Australian Wild Life explaining that feral cats are destroying our wild life. I don’t doubt that they are but humans are the reason we have feral cats.
The last time they mentioned feral cats on Sunrise one of the ladies on the panel made a comment about how much damage the mining industry does to our wild life and sarcastically said “But lets target the cats!” Kochie ignored her; not acknowledging the comment!
Humans definitely destroy more wildlife than feral cats. Not just mining but the real estate companies who destroy trees and heritage bushland, thereby destroying the homes and food sources of our native animals and birds. And then there’s road kill!
Recently a now ex friend asked me to drive him to Hindmarsh Island to dump a possum that was annoying his dog. (His car was off the road) I refused saying that I wasn’t moving an indigenous creature out of its territory. He turned really nasty and got someone else to take him! Possums being territorial will kill a possum that doesn’t belong. Even if this were not so the poor possum had no way of finding its way home over water.
People thoughtlessly destroying insects; mice; arachnoid; snails and even snakes (which they are not supposed to kill, but do) are destroying the ecology by killing so called pests.
The biggest problem is that there are too many humans on the planet. Why we don’t have zero population control, I don’t know.
This is off on a tangent but to do with the meat industry. In 1982 the husband of one of my staff was carting stock to the abattoirs and asked me to report to the RSPCA that the suckie calves were left to die of dehydration and starvation. When I called the RSPCA I was called a trouble maker and a liar!
I put something in writing but did not receive a response.
This still happens today. New born of all livestock are left to die without food or water. I was told by someone that worked at the abattoirs that the drug companies want them this way?
Attitudes to animals and minority groups have changed for the better in my life time. Hopefully humans will change before they destroy this beautiful planet.
